Housed in a former coal cellar of the 1905 building Volkart House in Winterthur, the Coalmine is today a cozy café with a cultural programme. The Coalmine maintains a cross-genre look at the visual culture of the present.
The café – with a stage and literary treasures like the Suhrkamp Complete Edition – offers climate-friendly menu using local produce.
The Forum for Documentary Photography and the space for contemporary photography offer aspiring photographers and photographers a platform. The Coalmine offers all year round exhibitions with great artistic and often social claim.
In the series of events Dokfilm the space shows documentaries on social policy issues from around the world.
Readings of the Literary Association Winterthur and live talk shows from StadTalk complete the coalmine-event program.
